SHE SHOULD BE SEEN, BUT NEVER TOUCHED...
Kerry Smithson's modeling career ensures that she will be admired from afar, which is essential since mere human touch sparks blinding pain and terrifying visions.
EVERY GOOD MODEL NEEDS A HEAVENLY BODYGUARD...
Dante Coltari is hired to protect Kerry from those who know who she is—or more importantly what she is—and want her dead because of it. Nothing could have prepared him for the challenge of keeping her safe. But, strangely, his lightest touch brings her exquisite pleasure rather than pain, and Dante and Kerry have an otherwordly connection that might just pull them through.

UNTOUCHED is one of those books that has me kicking myself for not knowing about this series sooner. Sara Humphreys has created a fantastic world of shape shifters, humans, and the fate that brings them together. I fell in love with these characters as well as this story line and cannot wait to get more from this series.
Kerry is a plus-sized model who is harboring a secret. When she touches people she gets agonizing pain that leaves her incapacitated. Because of this, she's lived in a world isolated from everyone due to what she feels is a curse--until she met Dante.
Dante sees Kerry and knows that she's the woman that he was meant to be with. He's a shifter and part of a race of beings called the Amoveo. These shifters are destined to find their one true mate, and Dante's finally found her. However, she doesn't know what her true nature is. There are dangerous people out there who do know what she is though, so Dante has to convince her of what they are, protect her from the bad people, and get her to love him.
This book was just fantastic. UNTOUCHED is the second book in the Amoveo Legend series, but it can be read as a standalone. It follows the story of the Amoveo shifters and their mates, and the storyline was riveting. The legend of the shifters and the half-human hybrids as well as the people who would like to see the hybrids killed kept me turning page after page to see what was going to happen.
The heat between Kerry and Dante was as steamy as it was romantic. I love the idea that because he knows they are fated, Dante doesn't fight the pull between them. Kerry on the other had had a lot to deal with because she spent her whole life thinking she couldn't touch anyone without doubling over in pain. I thought her struggles with the blossoming relationship endeared her to me even more.
Overall, I felt that UNTOUCHED had it all: amazing world-building, a great plot full of suspense and mystery, great characters, and of course a fated romance. I cannot wait to continue with this fantastic series. I feel that this author, Sara Humphreys, really knows what paranormal romance is about!
